Kerry Laughs At Romney’s Claim To Credit For Auto Bailout: ‘He Cannot Be Serious’

Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) laughed at Mitt Romney’s claim to “a lot of credit” for the auto bailout.

“I just — he cannot be serious,” Kerry told TPM in the Capitol Tuesday.

Congressional Republicans, who have criticized President Obama for the auto rescue, were also surprised by their presumptive presidential nominee’s claim.
